This truly stunning 560 sec~C126 - 'Carat, by Duchatalet' model is RHD, which is in a beautiful, original and unmolested condition, was first registered in the UK on 8th May 1987. First owner 1987-1990, then Mr Choy & Miss Au 1990-2014, then I bought Her from them. Current mileage is 146809. She has the original & tasteful Carat by Duchatalet bodykit and is metallic blue. Mr Choy & Miss Au never allowed the vehicle to be in the rain and She lived with them in Spain in summers, then in their garage in Guildford in Winter. This has never seen rain during my ownership either. She is a rare beauty, in a very good condition inside, out & underneath and out and has a FULL service history. She is probably the best example of this model that I have ever seen. Without exaggeration, or embellishment.
